Karlene Stange, The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals

 Karlene Strange

Do animals have souls? Do we bond spiritually with them? How do you know your pet loves you?

Colorado country veterinarian Karlene Stange gives us the kernels of truth about the spirit, or anima, of animals from the perspective of each major religion and distills these into a very practical philosophy: "We must be grateful for the service and friendship animals provide, and celebrate their lives, honor loving memories, and have no regrets."

Vets in rural practice face especially difficult illnesses, physical conditions, and emotional trials, not like dog-and-cat vets who see their “patients” in sterile urban offices. Dr. Karlene Stange embraced these difficulties because her work led her to spiritual awareness and even bliss, despite the inevitable losses and horrors. She found that her experience was described in Jungian psychology: animals led her to her anima, her true inner self and what in Latin means “soul,” “breath,” and “life itself.”

Case examples from her practice illustrate Stange’s journey to understand the spiritual nature of the animal-human bond. This led her to Buddhist, Christian, Sufi, Islamic, Jewish, Hindu, and pagan teachings. Her evolved understanding offers us a unique interpretation of our love for animals, a compelling tour of spiritual traditions, and, ultimately, a healing and joyful engagement with the creatures with whom we share our planet.

 Barbara Jaffe

Barbara Jaffe

Were you born to “replace” a child who died? No matter how many times replacement children are told that they are special, on some level they can feel they never seemed to live up to the model their parents wanted. They always fall short—never being “enough.”

Replacement child Barbara Jaffe shares her hard-won knowledge to help us identify our lost self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth, and fix the broken pieces within ourselves. We had been stunted; now, we need to be nurtured, not by others, but by ourselves. We can pursue a full and honorable life, one we can pass on to our children and then, to future generations.

Who says you have to find "the one"? How about three men; one to talk about the meaning of life with, one to be intimate with, and one to be an handyman?

Since creating Modern Love, Pouline has coached hundreds of people to get in touch with their three most important areas, whatever they may be. Her process also works for men seeking women and same-sex couples. It's fun, but under the humor is a serious look at bringing our highest consciousness to modern love and sex. Laugh and learn!
